It has been a rough few weeks in the new vaudeville and busker community, especially in Seattle. Well known Pike Place Market busker Jim Hinde passed away on Tuesday, June 10 (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2004470157_hindeobit11m.html) and I just heard that another favorite, Sandabeth Spae of Amber Tide, passed away a few days ago. I have not been able to find an online reference. You can learn more about her at the Women Buskers Museum.
Here are a couple of photos I recently took of these great artists at the Seattle Moisture Festival. I miss both fo them already.
There will be a memorial for Jim at the Pike Market on Wednesday, July 2 at 7pm.
Sandabeth and Thadeus Spae
That is sad! I think I took photos of Jim at the Market once...I will have to go back through the archives...ReplyDelete
